A little montage for reflection.
The basket contains broken, unwanted seashells once scattered on the sand.  Now collected, they hold words of wisdom scrawled on their timeless & worn surface.
I saved this unusual window frame from my Grandfathers dilapidated summer kitchen in Pine Bush, NY, and now, 40 years later, added mirrors and a candle sconce to hang in our breakfast room.
Couldnt resist this one....
Wrought iron base and a small butcher block... pretty cheap.
The model.... PRICELESS!
There is something about the simplicity, strength, and feel of an old hammer.  Now uniquely displayed, a one of a kind sculpture!

Some small projects put together out of some pretty basic things.  A simple pleasure.

Thank you for the opportunity!

I am happy to see I could help with your resizing photo issue, but I must admit it is mainly for selfish reasons. (I am now able to see all your cool junk once again!)

Take care,

Thank you.
